Reports reaching NATIONNEWS indicate a man was shot in the head earlier tonight at Silver Hill, Christ Church.

Police blocked the T junction with Montrose and Maxwell Hill by the hard courts with a lone Sport Utility Vehicle.

A small group of residents gathered in the area, but they are not sure what happened.

One said he heard a man had been shot in the head, but the incident occurred before he arrived. He said an ambulance was in the area, but it could not be seen from our vantage point.

Another said he did not know what had happened.

A young couple on foot were prevented from travelling along the road and route taxis were being diverted.

As the curious came and went, those who remained lamented Silver Hill would be in the headlines tomorrow.

One man said the area had such a poor reputation, when they went for job interviews they could not state they were from Silver Hill.

They were also concerned about the number of shootings that had occurred in the community.

By 8:30 p.m. the road had reopened.

Police public relations officer, acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, said he had no reports of an incident in the area. (SAT)
